Halerpestes tricuspis (Maxim.) Hand.-Mazz.
Syn : Ranunculus tricuspis Maxim.
Try to post images covering other aspects of plants also.

wonderful picture, … with demonstrating the harsh habitat and survival instinct of many of our botanical co-habitants on this earth. good for you and for us. please show us more of your cases.

Thank you, wasn’t aware of the limit, will take care in the future… the thought of clicking other aspects of the plant never struck me, the follies of not thinking like a botanist maybe…:-), a useful suggestion and will try to do that in future…

Thank you… shall do… I trek as a hobby so that is where these images come from… never struck me that I should photograph other aspects of the plant too… shall do that in the future…

You will definitely learn slowly like me 😁! Nothing to worry. Just go through regulations once !
